Guest Author's Note: "Perception is a very vital concept, as many roleplayers know ("You don't see any traps."), and there are several illusions and other means to have them see things that aren't really there. However, I'm not sure if I've ever heard of DMs secretly messing with the mind of just one player while leaving the rest unaffected.

And just to let you know, writing alt-scripts is a lot easier than putting them into comic form. I don't know how Newbiespud does it."

Newbiespud's Note: Specially selected software, lots of script editing, and whatever I still remember from Scott McCloud's Understanding Comics.

Flashpoint
This would be rather disturbing if experienced in an actual game.

Can't be worse then the one game where Alex Mercer/Queen of Blades was a ship. And two of the players.

But very amusing in a comic form.

I ran "Expedition to Castle Ravenloft". Messing with one PC while leaving the others alone was pretty much my M.O. for the entire time they spent on the second floor of that haunted castle.

The pinnacle of my work was when the warlock blasted the monk because he swore there was an invisible flying lobster on the monk's back eating at his CON score.
Trouble was, only the warlock saw it because it's invisible to normal sight and the warlock was the only one with "See Invisibility".

Oh and then there were the Wall Masters. Yes, the hands from the original Zelda game. They would use ethereal jaunt to enter rooms and rearrange furniture when only one PC was there to see it. They hide when the others show up. This aggrivated the party ranger to no end.

Then there was the party fighter. Couldn't sleep at the castle because she kept seeing roaches crawling EVERYWHERE in the dark. As soon as someone lit a torch or cast a light spell, bam! nothing.

It got so bad that I think it was the main reason the party left Ravenloft without finishing off the BBEG.

Well was there a lobster? Also, very well done.
